Weird Laws In Oklahoma

 

There are strange laws from state to state that are unique to that area. Some range back from the 1900’s and have never been changed and some are just laws that the state seems to think are a good idea. In Oklahoma, there are a fair share of those strange laws that will make you say umm what? Here are a few of our favorites:

 

Calling a woman a derogatory name – The official language says, “falsely and wantonly to any female married or unmarried a want of chastity, he shall be deemed guilty of slander”, but we just like to say don’t call women bad name, simple. If you do find yourself with these words coming out of your mouth, be prepared to pay a hefty fine of $25.

Being loud in a church – This law is from 1910 and still upholds today. If you are in church and being loud, technically, you can be arrested. What a way to keep your kids quiet in church!

Buying a car on Sunday – If you think you are going to buy a new care on your Sunday afternoon, think again! This is illegal and has been since 1959.

Eavesdropping – If you are listening in on someone else’s conversation and then go and publish it, that can land you with a misdemeanor.

With so many laws, it can seem like you can be arrested at every corner. The good news is that if you do get arrested, Thunder Bail Bonds is here to help you and make sure that you are out of jail as soon as possible. Give us a call anytime at (405) 235-0002.
